CAPOEIRA

WHAT IS CAPOEIRA?

Capoeira is a Brazilian Martial art created back in the 16th century by enslaved africans. It is known for its acrobatic and complex maneuvers, often involving hands on the ground and inverted kicks. “Playing” capoeira is both a game and a method of practicing the application of capoeira movements in simulated combat. It can be played anywhere, but it's usually done in a roda.

During the game most capoeira moves are used, but capoeiristas usually avoid using punches or elbow strikes unless it's a very aggressive game. The game usually does not focus on knocking down or destroying the opponent, rather it emphasizes skill.
